How Transitional Care in Jasper Reduces Hospital Readmissions
Ready, Set, Go Home with Transitional Care
Your loved one can have professional support with their hospital discharge and at-home recovery through the Ready, Set, Go Home transitional care program from Visiting Angels® Jasper. As a local care agency, we know just how difficult the move from hospital to home can be for elderly adults. As almost one in five Medicare beneficiaries are rehospitalized in the first 30 days after discharge, it is apparent that without proper care, this transition can be unsuccessful.
We have built our Ready, Set, Go Home program to include the comprehensive support seniors need while preparing for their hospital discharge and even after they return home. The ultimate aim of this program is to reduce care recipients' risk of returning to the hospital and help ensure they can stay in the comfort of home for as long as possible.
What Causes Hospital Readmissions in Jasper?
Every senior's situation is different, and the need for a hospital readmission can stem from a variety of sources. However, it is not uncommon for complications to be triggered when seniors lack a helping hand with recovery. If they feel exhausted or uncoordinated following their hospital stay, they may not be able to get back into the groove of daily life or even follow their doctors' instructions. This can, in turn, lead to skipped medication dosages, missed follow-up appointments, an unhealthy diet, and an overall decline in their physical condition that necessitates another hospital stay.
How Our Transitional Care Program Helps Seniors
Seniors in Jasper don't have to go through the discharge and recovery process alone. Our caregiving team can offer customized support tailored to their unique needs and risks, as well as the directives of their physicians. To provide well-rounded care, we have developed our Ready, Set, Go Home program based on three pillars:
- Help in the hospital setting. Proper planning is crucial when it comes to a hospital discharge. For this reason, we offer pre-discharge support for care recipients that includes assistance with care planning and preparation for the transition.
- At-home assistance. Our at-home care services are delivered according to each individual's care requirements and personal preferences to promote the best outcomes.
- Support from our office. The staff at our office in Jasper can provide ongoing assistance with logistics and scheduling to facilitate a smooth discharge and recovery.
